Intrigued by the vast wilderness of the Canadian North Miriam Körner moved to northern Saskatchewan from Germany. With newly acquired chainsaw skills, she built a tiny cabin tucked away in the bush, learned to run a dog team, and how to survive in the wilderness. Not long after her inauguration into the Canadian life-style she set out on her first thousand-mile dog team and canoe expedition along the ancient routes of the peoples who first inhibited this country. She shares her passion for wilderness and the deep respect of the people she meets on her journeys through her writing, photography and visual art. Miriam writes non-fiction for magazines and fiction for children and young adults. Her picture book, co-authored by Bernice Johnson-Laxdal, When the Trees Crackle with Cold (YNWP, 2016) won a Saskatchewan Book Award and a Moonbeam Award. Her young adult novel Yellow Dog (Red Deer Press) was shortlisted for a Saskatchewan Book award and five young readers' choice awards from B.C. to Ontario. Both books are currently on the Willow Awards List. Her newest novel Qaqavii (Red Deer Press) is set for release in Spring 2019.
